CAN YOU SEE ME? - Ismahan (age 13)
Ismahan, holding her sleeping 3-year-old sister, studies arithmetic at a school for displaced children, in Mogadishu, Somalia. She looks after her younger sibling while her parents work. The Government has recentlylaunched a Go-To-School Initiative to get 1 million children and youths into the classroom. School enrolment rates in Somalia are among the lowest in the world, and girls are the least likely to obtain an education.
